1.1 This test method describes a means for determining the amount of fuel dilution present in an in-service lubricant. This is achieved by drawing into a surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensor vapor from the lubricant. Fuel vapor will be absorbed by the SAW sensor’s polymer coating. The amount of absorbance is then related to fuel content in the lubricant.
1.2 The range of fuel dilution capable of being measured by the test method is from 0.1 % to 10.0 % by mass fuel dilution.
1.3 This test method is specifically tailored to determining the fuel dilution of in-service lubricants, including newly utilized lubricants. The method is applicable to contamination with diesel, gasoline, and jet fuels.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.See Section .
